Bank of America's Dead Drop To Rick Perry: "We Will Help You Out"

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Should we be surprised, frightened, disgusted or simply say "we knew it", that in the informal mixer just after Texas Governor and Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry spoke at a Politics and Eggs breakfast in Bedford, New Hampshire, an unknown gentlemen approaches a casual Perry like an Ian Flemming character, and proceeds to dead drop the following: "Bank of America... We will help you out"... and silently moves on. At least we know now who is funding what, and whose interests potential future president Perry will be paid to defend.

Fast forward to precisely 40 minutes into the blow clip (full event can be found here).


And for those who believe the man is a plant, we believe it is James Mahoney, Director of Public Policy for BoA. You can see a photo of him here. He's on the board of directors for the New England Council, the sponsors of yesterday's Politics and Eggs breakfast.

Naturally, we would be delighted for Bank of America to refute this assumption.

Perry is a fraud. He attended bilderberg. He supported forced vaccinations for our children. He is a globalist/elitist/anti american in sheeps clothing.

You simply cannot believe a word he says, because he is one of THEM.. a liar, just like Obama, Bush... the whole lot of 'em...

JW - just a thought here.... that was way too obvious. Too easy. Plus, the media blackout on Ron Paul is just wierd. It is too "in-your-face."

What if this is all part of a bigger game to propel Ron Paul into office... then hand him the keys to a system that has been engineered to explode the moment he turns the key. The ultimate "up yours" - and to the sheeple, it might actually appear that the Fed was good and the anti-fed people are the anti-christ. So that when the system is rebuilt, the central banking scheme has a better chance of being reinstated (but a "new and improved" version of course).

I have thought about that scenario.  What better way to discredit the liberty movement than to leave RP holding the bag during a collapse?  Even as president, he would not have enough of a bully pulpit to override what everyone else would be saying would be the cause of the collapse. The sheep are not smart enough to see through the BS, otherwise we would have stopped this long ago.

This ship is going down, and the banksters would sure love to have someone else take the heat.

Sorry to correct you, and I hope you're okay with a Wikipedia source, but it's less than 10k years old (according to the Perrys of the world):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Young_Earth_creationism :

"The earliest post-exilic Jewish chronicle preserved in the Hebrew language, the Seder Olam Rabbah, compiled by Jose ben Halafta in 160 AD, dates the creation of the world to 3751 BC while the later Seder Olam Zutta to 4339 BC"

that's also because the Tablet of Nations (Genesis chap 10, I Chron 1: 4-23), which shows the unity of humanity, stands unique in ancient literature, one of the oldest family genealogies on earth gives a very precise lineage from the sons of Noah to us. For instance Ashkenaz in Gen10:3, a son of Gomer, (Ashkuza, Sake, Skythes or Scythians) an indo-Germanic tribe located south of Lake Van, branching out into Saxon, Scandia, Germany, Denmark.

The Bible is not a science book but legal/historical testaments. Yet no science has ever proven it wrong. Neither Evolution nor Creationism can be proven to be true, both are religions.

Creationism of the evangelical sort, i.e. a literal mapping of bibilical timelines is all but disproven by any reasonable interpretation of the geologic and cosmological record. Now the Catholic Church which has stated that the Big Bang is consistent with Creation by a deity is on a different footing... The Catholic Church figured out a while back that denial of science was a loosing proposition. They know how to move the goal posts...

As a devout 'Scientist', I can argue in favor of intelligent design/creationism by merely playing with some Physical Constants.

For instance, if Time can be adjusted we can do ANYTHING! Sort of like the way radioactive decay rates are increasing

_lately_ due to the localized changing of the value of E. Physicists today now postulate that the various 22 permanent

constants are more localized phenomena, assuming differing values as one travels across the Universe.

Or multiverses, as the case may be.

A growing body of evidence suggests that gravity was weaker in the age of the Brontosaurus, allowing them

to raise their preposterously long necks upright. It does seem highly suspicious that the embedded mathematical

rules governing the behavior of a single hydrogen atom also encodes you, your computer, a network connection

to ZeroHedge, and a pesky cocaine habit. Just sayin'

I take the localized constants as an unwinding of physics dogma. Just let science be science. The Bible and God are a matter of faith. It itself admits this numerous times. The Israelites that experienced Passover first hand were impatient with Moses and the Commandments. Judas witnessed Jesus' miracles first hand and still betrayed him. Life is a miracle we all experience everyday. Whether we want to believe and have faith is a choice we must make freely.

 Pinched from Wiki: 

The International Theological Commission in a July 2004 statement endorsed by Cardinal Ratzinger, then president of the Commission and head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, now Pope Benedict XVI, includes this paragraph:

According to the widely accepted scientific account, the universe erupted 15 billion years ago in an explosion called the 'Big Bang' and has been expanding and cooling ever since. Later there gradually emerged the conditions necessary for the formation of atoms, still later the condensation of galaxies and stars, and about 10 billion years later the formation of planets. In our own solar system and on earth (formed about 4.5 billion years ago), the conditions have been favorable to the emergence of life. While there is little consensus among scientists about how the origin of this first microscopic life is to be explained, there is general agreement among them that the first organism dwelt on this planet about 3.5–4 billion years ago. Since it has been demonstrated that all living organisms on earth are genetically related, it is virtually certain that all living organisms have descended from this first organism. Converging evidence from many studies in the physical and biological sciences furnishes mounting support for some theory of evolution to account for the development and diversification of life on earth, while controversy continues over the pace and mechanisms of evolution

..." it is virtually certain that all living organisms have descended from this first organism."

They continue to make the same mistakes. Agree with popular explanations and when these are shown to be dumb, just have another International Theological Commission. What a joke. Well, at least they tried to cover their bases with the use of the word 'virtually'. Why even bother? They were already behind the curve virtually immediately when they published this in 2004.

No it was was not. Earth is billions of years old however many are decieved and lied to about the truth of God and Jesus. There are 3 earth ages. before the fall of satan, after the fall of satan and the eternity. The world was perfect and all humans were in there perfect form, satan fell and took 1/3. God destroyed that age to give a chance to be born innocent(in flesh) to what happened to give a choice. Satan falls, God destroys the earth as it is(dinosuars and such) katabol. end of first earth age. second earth age he creates people and changes earth to what it is now. the earth was not just void and without form in ancient texts it is written the earth was MADE void. so many phony religions and so-called ones like cathoic(which are not). so 2nd earth age starts and we are put into flesh. God made ALL races in the 6th day. notice he says let us make them in OUR image. also adam and eve were not created until after 7th day. so starts 2nd earth age and goes utnil Jesus returns and all flesh once more is no more and after the millenium or Lord's day(oen day of God is 1 thousand of mans) then white throne judgement then finally the eternity.  as for dinosaurs they are mentioned in Job ch40. have a kid draw what he describes seeing. with a tail as big as a tree and a animal so big no trap could stop him. no hippo has a tree tail no mammoth has a tree tail. what creatures had tails that big? and other features as well. Now the 3 earth ages are described in many palces jsut to name one for a reference is 2nd peter. you have to be able to see past traditions of men and lies of men and such to see the truth. so many false religons and teachings. so much govt funded science and history. so many corrupt folks in hihg places. for certain men crept in unawares...

Yes, there are periods of time that are accounted for and which people mix up.

God's planet (earth) was created billions of years ago.  The planet was "designed" to cycle in order to refresh itself -a very brilliant design at that!- and it's this cycling that cause a lot of confusion.  This cycling is the changing from glacial to inter-glacial and from interglacial to glacial periods.  The inter-glacial period lasts roughly 10,000 years (plus or minus a couple of thousand).  Each time the cycle hits mankind is pretty much wiped out, resulting in knowledge/history being erased.  Higher order of lifeforms have to undergo the whole process of understanding the "intelligent design" all over again, at it doesn't seem to occur until the inter-glacial period has nearly passed.

You are spot on.  Perry was also behind the Trans-Texas Corridor toll road proposal, held secret meetings with the Spanish company Cintra which would fund the project and then get exclusive rights for 100 years to collect tolls and operate all the gas stations,etc. within the corridor.  The corridor was the first leg of what was intended to go all the way to Canada as an intergal part of the planned North American Union.  Fortunately, the meltdown in 2008 has put plans for the corridor on the shelf for now.

when you understand that many Christians embrace the notion that "earth" is meant to be a trial / tribulation / proving ground, a sort of "hell" which they navigate to their "rewards in Heaven" which is Paradise, the end game of eternal bliss, yadda yadda - much of what goes down "in their name" makes more sense - including Zionist Christians, and their existence & support of Zionist Hebrew agenda - it can boil down to a bunch of people all playing games with each other, believing that their "side" is gonna get the goods, and the "others" will suffer the Godly wrath. . .

it was not meant to be a trial and trib we forced it to be. it was once perfect and we lived in perfect form. we messed it up. many so-called christian branches do in fact support zionist or pagan deals. if you read and understand bible it actually spells all of that out plainly. so much of religion and such has been infiltrated and twisted. confusion is running rampant. so many dont even know they are of 12 tribes of israel/judah. 10 migrated north and then spread. 2 remained which make up judah. lot of mixing has gone on since though and a lot of certain men crept in religion, govt, politics, science fields, on and on. all of this relgion stuff has been told and made plain. its peoples own blinders and traditions that make none sense of the truth of God and Jesus(yes Jesus is not orignal name i know but it is easily reconinzed by unlearned folks so i use that). Heaven is going to be on earth as well. after millenium God puts hit throne back here. no flyin away(rapture lies) none of that type stuff. i can tell you have never actually read or studied any bible. you really should actually read and study it and history from many perspectives and such. i didnt believe or trust until i actually took the time. there is truth out there in this messed up confused and infiltrated, subverted and coampartmentalised world.

Hm... it was perfect yet it isn't?

Go forth and multiply on a finite planet is perfect?  I'm just not seeing how any rationalizing can reconcile this conflict.

As soon as religion gets pitched from one person to the next it's tainted.  If you have to let it out of your head it's no longer about YOUR connection and becomes more about controlling others.  Give money/labor to those who don't produce, those who only speak (the very same things that you can discern yourself, on your own*).

* Can a blind, deaf and dumb person follow Christianity (or any other institutional religion)?  If God speaks, then how does such a person hear?

It's all about warning us to be wary of ourselves.  All of nature is about deception, humans are no different (they are, after all, OF nature, something that modern religions try and tell us we are not, because authority/power requires the acknowledgement of superiority).

Well, I guess you are dissing ME!  I am a Christian, but a thinking, discerning one.  I'm sure we would not agree upon our philosophies, so I won't even go there.  But I WILL say that your interpretation of what the motivations are to "be a Christian" are not mine.  I think you may misinterpret many who call themselves believers, as you can't possibly know their innermost being.

My point was really that many Christians truly ARE off-base in how they let their "faith" influence their politics, and are too easily deceived and led naively into one political stance.  But it is not Christianity's fault, it is the fault of mindless individuals who check their brain at the door!  There are Jews, and there are Zionists...and I know the difference!

In short, don't lump us all together, please.  It's unkind.

I am sure at this point Bank of America is planting people at EVERY political rally saying they will help them -- they need all the help they can get. Basically - given the real possibility they will be tits up by the time the election rolls around - their "Help" may be offering office space to Perry to rent for his campaign organizers to use.

If the guy is genuinely from BofA, my best wild-arsed guess would be this: BofA has an established relationship with all the other front-runners, so they don't need to pounce on them at greeting sessions. But Perry's a different story: his sudden arrival as a leading contender blindsided them, so now they're jumping up and down trying to get his attention. Perry apparently isn't hurting for money - and has to be aware of the risks of getting linked to BofA, especially right at the moment - so BofA is much more eager to talk to him than he is to talk to them.

If that's the story, then it seems to confirm the opinion on Wall Street that BofA's people can't do anything right. If this video gets any mainstream attention, they they've probably made an enemy of Perry, or at least given him good reason to distance himself from them in public. Which might be really unhelpful if BAC has a Lehman moment in 2013.

First banksters get politicians to save their "TBTF" criminal asses with trillions in public money, then their champions, S&P, stick it to the government due to the government's "deficit problem," and, completing the three-step, business turns around and blames government for its own still fucked-up mess. 

Meanwhile, Marked To Myth corporates are still AAA. 

First government gets raped and robbed, then gets put on display in the public square as everybody's whipping boy.

Fucking sociopaths, is all I can say. 

What they need is a POTUS who will rally the public to hate the whipping boy and embrace the slavery of "austerity" as a heroic rejection of that putative root evil.

My guess he's around primarily because they get a ratings spike when he rants, very like the movie Network, and by all reports their overall ratings have been declining. The Corleone advice (keep your friends close, and your enemies closer) may also be at play - if the stuff starts getting too crazy (too close to the hands that feed), there'll be some step over the line that will be the lever to discredit the rest, or a quiet talking to to push something that will do the same, again as in Network.

Infrastructure bank = fiscal stimulus of some kind, with lots of skimming for the operators, and cementing (pun?) established networks of union and other connected job dispensers (as opposed to creators).

The real rant is a cry for leadership, which IMO is an open invitation for just the kind of increasing government results that proved themselves inadequate in the 1930s and whenever else they've been tried (except, of course, for those getting paid). Or maybe worse, and we get the strong leader some claim to want. As to that, Aesop had it right - be careful what you wish for: http://www.aesopfables.com/cgi/aesop1.cgi?2&TheFrogsAskingforKing. See any number of 20th and 21st century examples. 

The strong leadership that's needed is leadership in governmental restraint. Maybe Ron Paul, but just remember that US gov't ended Reagan's eight years larger than when he started.
